• Merry Christmas 2016

    4 weeks ago
    Hello and Happy Holidays!!! This year time has flew by and Christmas has snuck up on us. All of my Christmas shopping is done, I didn't have a ton of gifts to buy, so it was easy. I am grateful for all the places that offer online shopping, because crowded stores stress me out. One of the coolest traditions we started this year, is taking boys to shop for each other. Their budget wasn't huge,...

    Hi! Holidays are already around the corner! Is your house all decorated? We've moved last summer and all of the old stuff doesn't match our new house. Well, actually the new house doesn't match our style, so we ended up with a big mess of opposite styles, lol.. Since the color white matches everything, I am sticking with it for decorations. So far I like how our Christmas decorations turned out...

    3 months ago
    I wanted to share some photos from our recent trip to Scottsdale, AZ. Our friends are frequent visitors there and invited us to tag along. Initially we had Banff, Canada planned for that weekend, but it turned out that it snows there in September. We figured we'd better off enjoy the sunshine. We stayed at Fairmont in Scottsdale, AZ. The resort itself is huge, I believe it sits on 60 acres, but...

    Now that I am back, I am playing a bit of a catch up. I know this post is way overdue, but I really wanted to share a bit of what we've been up to. This is from our trip to the Ocean Shores on a Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at Oyhut Bay cottage for 3 nights and we had a blast.

    Hello :) Yes I am still alive, well, barely. We finally listed our house for sale and in a process of moving to our new place. As you probably know, I still work full time, with 3 hour of commute each day. This all adds up to no time for a break. But I love this busy schedule, it keeps me in check and I never have a moment to be bored. My job offered me to go to New Orleans to one of the events...
  • Surviving Juicing for a Week + Great Juice Recipe

    11 months ago
    A lot of you have asked for details about my juicing, so I will share my experience with you. Just a little summary before I get started. I have always struggled with weight. I was the biggest and tallest in my elementary classes, not one of those girly girls. While pregnant, I hit 205lbs with both pregnancies. Losing weight after that was a nightmare, but I was able to get down to 141lbs. So...

    So many of us are paving a fresh road for a New Year's resolution. I'm putting together a post of some of my favorite salads.

So we goal a salad a day to catch up on all those benefits. A small flare...
